Women executives and philanthropists plan a fundraiser for Attorney General Roy Cooper later this month.

It will be held at the Country Club Hills neighborhood home of Easter Maynard, who runs ChildTrust Foundation, a corporate foundation focused on early childhood and literacy.

Former secretary of the state Department of Cultural Resources Betty Ray McCain is among the host committee members.
